MESSIAH 2018 SOLOISTS: NICOLE REID, SOPRANO
Born and raised in Kincardine, NICOLE REID is an avid singer and musician who is proud to have had the opportunity to share music with such a wonderful community. Her mom would say that she was born singing. Starting out as a chorus member at the Tiverton Presbyterian Church, she was always in anything music-related in elementary and secondary school. After completing her post-secondary studies in 2007 Nicole returned home and connected with the many groups of musicians that Kincardine has to offer. Each day they challenge her to become better and she is truly grateful to know each and every one of them.
A violin student with John Schnarr, she was exposed to a wide range of musical talent from all over Canada through Kincardine Summer Music Festival concerts.
This is her 20th year performing in the Messiah fundraising event. Usually a violinist in the orchestra, this will be her first performance as a soprano soloist.
Nicole is a self-taught vocalist who has sung with Kincardine Community Singers, The Pleats (featured in the KSMF 4 O’Clock in the Park Concert Series) the Lighthouse Swing Band and the Kincardine Scottish Fiddle Orchestra.
